Arraigned on charges: Christopher N. Collins, 35, of 218 Bench Ave., Canton, was arraigned Tuesday before District Judge Robert Redlinger on charges of simple assault, terroristic threats, reckless endangerment and harassment.

Wife arrested: Tatiana Johns, 41, of 431 Morganza Road, Cecil, was arrested Monday by township police after she allegedly hit her husband, Steven Johns, in the arms and face during an argument over money her father sent her for her birthday. She was arraigned before District Judge Robert Redlinger on charges of simple assault and harassment. She was released on $5,000 unsecured bond.
Restaurant cited: The operators of The Boulevard Pub and Kitchen, 114 Southpointe Boulevard, face a citation from the state police Bureau of Liquor Control Enforcement for allegedly providing a 19-year-old with an alcoholic beverage on April 11.
Driver injured: John M. Schoedel, 60, of 388 Mingo Church Road, Finleyville, was injured Monday in a one-vehicle crash at Valleybrook and Bebout roads, Peters police said. Shoedel told police that he fell asleep and crashed into the hillside. He was treated at Canonsburg General Hospital and released.
Drunken driving alleged: City police said they will charge Caleb Sommers, 24, of 220 Coremont Ave. with driving under the influence of alcohol after he refused a blood-alcohol test following an accident on Tyler Avenue in which his vehicle severed a telephone pole late Thursday night. Officers on the scene said they found beer cans on the front and rear floor of the vehicle and that Sommers’ breath smelled of alcohol. When officers took Sommers to the South Strabane Township police station for a chemical test, he didn’t answer questions authorizing the test, which resulted in a refusal, police said. Charges will be filed through the office of District Judge Robert Redlinger.
Missing wheel: Tracy McElhone of Stone Creek Lane told city police her vehicle was placed on a cinder block after the right rear passenger wheel was stolen. The theft happened while the vehicle was parked in the 600 block of Fayette Street early Monday morning while McElhone was at work.
